Democratic Attorney General Andrew Cuomo says he won't endorse anyone in Tuesday's five-way Democratic primary in the race to replace him.

Cuomo tells The Associated Press Friday the "leading candidates" have all signed on to his plan for changing state government and he'll remain neutral in the primary. He didn't name the leading candidates.

Cuomo is the front-running candidate for governor and his endorsement could have proven critical. Polls show the five contenders have had trouble grabbing attention and the race is too close to call.

The candidates are former state insurance superintendent and assistant attorney general Eric Dinallo, Assemblyman Richard Brodsky, former federal prosecutor and trial attorney Sean Coffey, Nassau County District Attorney Kathleen Rice, and state Sen. Eric Schneiderman.
